Swoop launched new service from Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ) to Ottawa International Airport (YOW) on Sunday (June 19). 

Swoop flight WO580 departed from Halifax at 4:55 p.m. local time.

"As Canada's leading ultra-low-cost airline, we are thrilled to be adding more connectivity for residents of Halifax as part of our summer network expansion," said Shane Workman, head of flight operations, Swoop. "The remarkable growth the Canadian tourism sector has experienced relies on convenient and affordable air service, and we're proud to be supporting the Halifax community with more ultra-not-expensive fares."

Swoop celebrated its first flight in Halifax four years ago, on June 21, 2018, and the airline has significantly grown connectivity over the years. 

Earlier this summer, Swoop began offering non-stop service between Halifax and Edmonton in addition to existing services to Winnipeg, Hamilton, and Toronto.

Introductory fares from Halifax to Ottawa start at just $59 CAD. Here's the schedule:
